Using meta-data for GDPR Compliance


16th April, 2018

GDPRYour business may hold personal data, but the new GDPR view of data protection means that you do not own it – therefore, companies should consider themselves as custodians of the data to be GDPR compliant.


Much of this personal data is held in databases and meta-data is required to interrogate and manage databases. This is why meta-data is so important for GDPR compliance.


Meta-data is descriptive tags about the data. In other words, information (data) that provides additional information about other data. In terms of a document, it could be a retention date, unique identifier such as customer number or how it relates to business processes.


Meta-data is essential for GDPR compliance because it allows for discovery - identification, access - version control, and assists with auditing - management of documents containing personal data. This also helps organisations better understand the personal data it holds, the way it flows through the business and quickly gain access to it when required.


GDPR requires companies to know what personal data it holds, why - where it is held, how it is used, who can access it, who has used it and how to deal efficiently with a data breach - Meta-data enables policy driven access and audit controls to address all of these requirements.


infoRouter Document Management SoftwareUnfortunately, not all document (or data) has meta-data attached (e.g. electronic files stored on shared drives or PCs, or perhaps paper records stored in filing cabinets) – this is why document management software has a valuable role to play in managing information in a structured way.


Customisable meta-data fields are a core feature of infoRouter Document and Record Management Software so can be a huge help with GDPR compliance.
